ROAD resurfacing work will get under way tonight on a section of the A96 west of Keith.

The £170,000 overnight improvements at North Bogbain will run for five nights.

The project will be carried out between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night, and is due to be completed by 6.30am on Saturday, December 18.

A lane closure with a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours and all traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland's north-east representative, said: "This surfacing project near Keith has been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A96 for motorists.

"We've taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the works overnight and removing all traffic management during the daytime to further limit any impact to motorists.

"We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A96."
